WHAT IS CHRISTIAN LIFE COACHING?

Christian Life Coaching is a coming along-side; an ongoing conversation designed to support and empower you to live on mission (the unique purpose that He has chosen just for you) in your daily life, ministry or profession. The Christian Life Coaching goal is to seek the Holy Spirit’s direction, discover new things about yourself, and to take action to reshape your life and/or business around what you’ve discovered.

Coaching

The time we spend together in our coaching conversations will help you gain insights, find deeper personal awareness, align your behavior and actions, and move forward to the dreams and goals you desire to achieve.

How Does Coaching Work?

Since each coaching session is held by telephone, I am blessed to coach women all over the world. Each session varies according to need, however most sessions occur every couple of weeks and last about 45-60 minutes. Live in Singapore? Face-to-Face coaching sessions are also available.

Brief chats (10 minutes or less) and unlimited emails between appointments are welcome and encouraged for celebrations of successes or to tackle any difficulties that may come up between sessions.

The objectives for each of our conversations are to bring great clarity to the things you are facing, to help you gain insight, and to leave each session with some specific action steps that you will work toward completing before your next session.

What Coaching is …

Coaching is about youyour goals, your learning, and your growth. As your coach, I will come along-side you and together we will seek the Holy Spirit for His direction for you.

Coaching is about you learning – rather than me telling. While there are opportunities for mentoring in our relationship, you are the ultimate expert on your life. As your coach, I will use coaching techniques such as active listening, open questions, encouragement and celebration, and sometimes challenges; all to help you in seeking, discovering, and moving forward toward your goals and dreams.

Coaching is about action – your action. Each session you will decide on 1-3 actions steps that you will take before the next session. You will be amazed at how quickly you’ll see progress toward your desired goals and becoming all you want to be and can be for His glory.

Coaching is encouraging, energizing, and empowering. As you overcome the challenges that may have held you back and begin to see forward movement to your goals and dreams, the momentum that you gain will give you energy to tackle the next challenge — and the next. You will be so encouraged by the progress that you make, you won’t want to quit!

What Coaching is not …

Coaching is not therapy or counseling. Although many of the communication techniques are the same, like active listening, reflecting, use of questions, limited advice giving, etc., therapy focuses on the past to bring healing and unblock a person to move ahead. Coaching is future and action oriented, for people who are ready to take positive steps toward fulfilling their goals and dreams.

Why Use a Coach?

Just about everyone can benefit from having a Leadership Coach — even other coaches. There are many reasons that people may be interested in having a coaching relationship and they are as unique as the person being coached.

Here are just a few examples that motivate people to use a coach:

  • To discover ‘mission
